So, it was a setback to BazBall theory of England under the newly formed aggressive-approached management of coach Brendon McCullum and captain Ben Stokes. The three lions happened to lose the second of the two-match Test series against New Zealand by the barest of margins; 1 run, the visitors dominated the Wellington Test for almost four days of the match.

But eventually, it was Tim Southee’s New Zealand that crossed the line to win the match by 1 run and level the series by 1-1; as they lost the first match in Mount Maunganui. Notably, it was only the second defeat for England in the last 10 Tests they played under the captaincy of Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum’s coaching.

The fans also slammed England’s BazBall theory and approach of the over-aggressive game in Test cricket. A few of the cricket fans also agreed that BazBall doesn’t works always all the time.

Here’s how fans trolled England after their defeat against New Zealand:

Earlier, the veteran Indian off-spinner and modern-day great all-rounder, Ravichandran Ashwin had also talked about the approach of McCullum and Stokes. Ashwin reckoned that this ‘BazBall’ theory of England management isn’t workable in certain conditions.

“We now have a concept called Bazball. England is playing high-paced Test match cricket. They want to play a certain style of cricket. But in certain types of wickets, when you try and attack every ball, you will falter. There are both advantages and disadvantages to this approach,” said Ashwin in a video on his YouTube channel.

“Some will ask instead of defending and getting all out for 100, I will slog it out and get all out for 140. We will only know when the game pans out whether the approach works or not. Sometimes, on the wicket, conditions need to be respected. If you respect the pitch and play accordingly, the pitch will also respect you. If you respect the pitch, it will pay you dividends,” he added later.
